Sex Education Actor Ncuti Gatwa will take over from Jodie Whittaker as the star of Doctor Who.
He will become the 14th Time Lord on the popular science fiction show - and the first person of colour to play the lead role.
He said: "It feels really amazing. It's a true honour. This role is an institution and it's so iconic. It means a lot to so many people, including myself.
“I feel very grateful to have had the baton handed over and I'm going to try to do my best."
Gatwa will make his debut on the show in 2023.
